Lieutenants Paris, Torres, and Durst are imprisoned by the Vidiians. In an attempt to develop a cure for the phage, a Vidiian doctor splits the bi-racial Torres into two people (one Klingon and one Human) because he believes Klingons are immune to the Phage. The two Torreses escape the prison compound, but the Klingon Torres is fatally injured protecting the Human Torres while the Human Torres cracks the Vidiiam computer to escape. Before her death, the Klingon Torres tells her Human half that showing courage makes her death honorable. The Doctor tells the Human Torres, who has contracted the Phage, that she will not survive unless he re-integrates her Klingon DNA.
